TUESDAY, NOVKMBKR 11. 1047 m,YTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUKIKR NKWS Battered Chicks To Meet Pioneers BlytheviHe Team To Journey to Batesville Friday The bruiser! and battered Blythe- viltc chicks, .smarting from the 35 to 21 defeat handed them by tlie North Little Rock Wildcats last week, took to Ihe practice field yesterday afternoon to begin preparation for their lilt with the Batesville Pioneers Friday nigh'.. Conches Nig Bynuin and Walter "Buddy" Davis kept their charges in Ihe confines of Haley Field yesterday due [o inclement .weather and .lent them through a light scrimmage session in n slow, steady dri7,2!c. .Many Sere Spols Develop Yesterday's drill session resembled a recreation period at ;\ convalescent hospital toi 1 just about every member of the squad was either limping through the work-out or taking limbering-up laps around the Held in an elfort to work Ihe kinks out of sore muscles. Two members of the squad, R. U. Allen and L. W. Fitzhllgh. didn't even dress out for ihe practice , session. Allen re-hurt his ankle in ! hist week's game :uid Fiizhugh received an injured knee in Ihe contest. Both boys spent the afternoon in tho "whirlpool" treating their sore sixits. And Donald Huey was also absent yesterday. The Chicks' diminutive quarterback has been sidelined temporarily with water on the knee and the tribal chieftains expressed doubt that either he or Fitzhugh will be ready for use Friday night. Couch Bynum limited yesterdays drills to light offensive work-outs. He held one shoH full time scrimmage session, then divided his squad into two teams and rehearsed plays for the remainder of the aiternoon. Paps Still Seeking Game Even though they are "over the hump' 'with the bigger learns of their schedule, the Chicks can expect no picnic this week. The Pioneers, despite several losses already thL". year, usually eye the BlytheviHe game with caution and will lie gunning tor the Chicks in this contest. The Papooses too held their workout at Haley Field yesterday. They witnessed an exceptionally light session of offensive drills, punting and passing before rain drove them inside. The Pups face the possibility of another open date this week due to the cancellation of the East Side Little Rock game which was scheduled for Thursday night. However efforts ate being made to obtain a game for this week but so far none has, been booked. Truce Must Work Both Ways Mexicans Say MEXICO CITY, Noy 11. (UP) — The Mexican Baseball League insisted today that its offered truce with the U. S. Leagues must be a two-way proposition. Aguilar Reyes, who promised no more raids oa American and National League talent when he took over direction of the Mexican, said that the assurance would be lor- sotten if U. S. Leagues attempt to sign players under contract here. At the same lime, Reyes, stated that no foreign-born players in the Mexican League will be fired because of the new ruling limiting the number of imports on each team's roster. ONE '£ CROWD Couhl This lie the Kun-uruiind? Arkansas' high school football play-off bracket for AA. A and B championships was drawn up at n meeting of the Executive Committee of the Arkansas Athletic Asslcia- tlon in Litlle Rock lust weekend and from where II looks like a perfect set-up for Litlle Rock and North Little Rock. According lo the parings announced by the committee Blytheville will play the winner of District 2 and the winner of District 5. which includes Little Rock, and North Little Hock, will play the winner of District 6. But there are no Double-A teams In either District '2 or District 6 so the committee will have to designate AA teams from some other district to represent them in the play-off. The Tigers and the Wildcats are still arguing over who will represent District 5 Duuble-A and members of the committee will have to decide the issue through comparative scores and penetrations but. it has already been hinted that the I several years.

If he Isn't nil-slate material, 1 would like lo know who Is. And there is another member of the Chk-ks baeklictd that deserves mention on ihe all-star team. Harold "Iluck" Traylor, McParland's running mule, hasn't handled the ball as many limes as Mac hns bin he luis u belici UVCIUKO. Traylor has curried the ball 51 times in seven game.s ami has a net gain of -124 , yards for an average of 8.ji yards! per try and has scored 13 points.i Both he and McPurland would he'. good men on anybody's all-stale club.

If that is true, then there Is a possibility Little Hock and North Litlle Rock will he paired in the first round ol the play-off. But 't is my guess they won't be. Both Greater Little Hock newspapers Imva listed the pairing as a "possibility" but then turned around and termed it as highly improbable. An article appearing In Saturday's Issue of the Arkansas Gazette went so far lo offer this excuse: "Sine, 1 the second choice in 5AA likely will be invited, llie Tillers :Mul Wildcats cmild be pnix'tl against each other in (he first round, hul the AAA has made it a policy in basket ball that teams from llie same m'Mricl itre to be placed in separate halves of the bracket." This would IJIL the Chicks against either the Tigers or the Wildcats in the first round game and would pair the District 5 winner, which probably will be Little Rock, with another game. But why not pair the Tigers anil Wildcats in the first round? If the District 5 second choice team Is invited, there has h?en no official word yet guaranteeing (hat they will, the two teams probably will hnve to meet sooner or later if they both stay in the running. There isno rule, just so-called policy, that prohibits it. Could it be the money angle?? , How's Your All-state? Well it's almost all-state time laurels.

Schoolboy-Pro Relations Code AskedbyNFAA CINCINNATI, O., Nov. 11. ,UP) — As an outgrowth of the explosive controversy between the Chicago While Sox and Baseball Coinmis- mlssioncr A. B. (Happy) Chandler, high school athletic officials today sought an all-covering code regulating the relations of schoolboy athletes and professionals. TIIC officials, meeting with baseball executives last niglii following Ihe annual Major Ljague draft, planned to eliminate if they could the inequalities of various state federation rules. H. B. Porter of Chicago, secretary of the National Federation of High School Athletic Associations, was spokesman for the schools, and he pointed out that in some states a prep player can be declared Ineligible merely for practicing with a professional, On (he oilier hand, in other states (he rules are lenient to the other extreme.
